Italian guitarist, composer and instrument maker Luigi Legnani performed widely throughout Europe and was admired by Paganini as the guitar’s “leading player” of his day. Legnani’s virtuosity was eminently suited to the 19th century fashion for transcribing and writing variations on famous opera themes that range from the romance of L’Italiana in Algeri to the drama of Armida. The ‘orchestral’ colours of the guitar are fully explored with breathtaking special techniques and imitative effects.

James Akers (romantic guitar)

One Thing About This Album: The increasingly in-demand guitarist and lutenist James Akers makes his Resonus solo debut with a stunning album of works for romantic guitar.

Akers provides a captivating programme of works – consisting almost entirely of world premiere recordings – by guitar legends from continental Europe, all inspired by the Scottish landscape its music and its literature.

Featuring Mauro Giuliani & Luigi Legnani (from Italy), Fernando Sor (from Spain) and Johann Kaspar Mertz (from Hungary), this seductive album draws the listener in to the magical, diverse, and even haunting, Scottish influences that bewitched each of these nineteenth century composers.

“To explore the charming world of the guitar’s first golden age, you won’t do better than this lovely disc” BBC Music Magazine, September 2016 ****

“Akers [imbues] the insouciant virtuosity of Legnani’s Variations on Rossini’s ‘Oh quante lagrime’, the wistful beauty of Giuliani’s Coming through the rye and the melancholic theatre of Mertz’s Fingal’s Cave with all the warmth, colour and expressive richness one could hope for” Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
